you, Ralph, as well as anyone else are welcome to come help us develop
ubuntu studio however you see fit. We welcome constructive criticism, but
actual help is much preferred. If something you feel needs attention is not
getting attention, feel free to offer that attention... otherwise, I am
personally going to continue to appreciate and respect the work of our
current volunteers... cheers!
